1912 or 13 Sears Dreadnaught

I saw one of these in a motorcycle museum in central Iowa. The other one is here in the building I work in, Sears Holdings in suburban Chicago. You had to have deeeeep pockets to buy this back in the day.



I think it's quite cool.

According to an "Inflation Calculator", $250 in 1913 is equal to $5985 today. So just a little more than I paid for my 2009 Vulcan 500.

Yeah but not in BUYING power. $250 back would buy a ton of things for the barn, almost a whole kitchen, etc...

The Wheels Thru Time Museum in Maggie Valley, NC has one on display. It runs as does most all motorcycles on display. Pretty cool place to spend some time!
